Our anti-shatter mirror backing safety tapes are a clear polyester tape that is used as an anti-shatter mirror backing tape.
If the mirror glass is broken or shattered the backing tape keeps all the glass in place and prevents it from shattering into dangerous shards of glass.
Much safer working environment and it's easier for the glass that has shattered to be cleaned up and disposed of accordingly.
Adhesive mirror tapes are designed to be a biaxially oriented polypropylene safety backing tape and are coated with an acrylic-based pressure-sensitive adhesive. It has high tack properties, resulting in superior adhesive power.
As with all Tape products, please ensure the surfaces to be
bonded are Clean, Dry and Dust Free . Surface contact is very important to adhesive performance. It is vital that the surfaces are suitably prepared and the tape is applied in the correct way. Cleaner surfaces will result in a better adhesive bond.
Ensure that all surfaces need are clean and dry, removing any moisture, grease, dust or debris. We recommend using that IPA to clean the surface, which you can also purchase from us if required. Using tissue paper, wipe the surfaces in one direction only to avoid recontamination of the surface. Apply the tape at ambient temperatures for best results and to avoid contamination.
It is important that pressure is applied to secure the required bond when applying the tape to the surface. Time and temperature also play a part in the strength of the bond, and adhesive strength will increase over a period of time.
